The Pennsylvania State University

School of Visual Arts


Photo Class

Photography is about seeing. The Photography area of the School of Visual Arts teaches students to see, to enable them to become sensitive to the interplay of light and the elements of photographic vision. A camera does not capture reality it filters it according to the vision of the person behind the lens. Everyone has a different vision. Working in darkrooms and digital labs provides students with the opportunity to gain the photographic skills necessary for the creative investigation of their personal as well as a larger worldview.
